­­­Welcome to my website.­

My name is Owen Spencer-Thoma­s, and I a­m a journalist, writer/broadcaster, speech trainer and media consultant. I am very fortunate to enjoy an interesting and stimulating profession, which allows me to travel and meet all sorts of interesting people.

Handling the Media and Press Conferences

Speech Training

Arranging and Publicising Special Events and Conferences

Here is some background information.   

Much of my career has been spent in television. I have s­pent over three decades as a news journalist and reporter, first working for the BBC and later Anglia Television.

12 years ago, I became the media spokesperson for the Diocese of Ely. Since moving on in March 2011, I have been working as a freelance broadcaster, trainer and consultant. 

I have published a collection of usefu­l articles, which are u­pdated regularly and published on this website.  If you have a story to tell on radio or TV, or you're looking for good press coverage, you'll find pages of valuable info on journalism and the media. I've also published some articles I wrote for the Ely Ensign in the hope you will find these of interest. 

I have added two new pages to my web site:

  • Public Speaking
  • Linguistics




      Headline Howlers and Clangers

       There’s going above and beyond in the call of duty, and then there’s this:

      “Panda mating fails, veterinarian takes over”

      And this one from the Toronto Star 

       "Marijuana issue sent to joint committee."


      BBC presenter, Ore Oduba, reporting that showjumper, William Fox-Pitt, had suffered serious head injuries in a fall during a horse trial in France, said:

      "He's under sedation now in a French hosptial where his condition is described as stable."  

      Golf Funny: you can also see Oduba's blooper on YouTube when he swears unintentionally on BBC Breakfast TV Easter Sunday.
